March 2, 1976 – Walt Disney World Welcomes 50-Millionth Guest

On March 2, 1976, Walt Disney World welcomed its 50-millionth guest to the park. 13-year-old Susan Brummer from Virginia was the lucky guest welcomed in. This was quite a feat for the park, as it had only been open under five years. Tourism continued to grow for the parks at this stage, as new attractions and resort locations were added every year to keep interest high. The 100-millionth guest would arrive at the park only three years later.

December 28, 2010 – Disneyland Suspends Ticket Sales After Filling to Capacity

“Certainly we want all of our guests to have the best guest experience, so we have measures in place to make sure that we deliver the best time.” – Betty Sanchez, Disneyland Park Spokesperson

On December 28, 2010, two hours after opening, Disneyland suspended ticket sales, as the park was filled to capacity. Although guests were directed to California Adventure, that park was soon filled to capacity as well. According to park officials, it was common for the parks to fill up in the holiday season, especially if the California weather was cooperating.
